18 Great Guildford St
You are warmly invited to attend Better Bankside's twelfth AGM. The meeting is the second in our third five-year term.
We have recently concluded research among businesses, employees and visitors to the area. This has examined experience and perceptions of the area and our services, and the level of approval they attain. The range of services we deliver is already broad, and for good reason. The area has such a rich diversity of businesses, each with particular needs. As ever we depend on feedback and are keen to meet with businesses to understand their needs - and ensure that our services help meet their concerns. We will be sharing the results of the surveying at the AGM.
At the AGM there is a chance for you to join Better Bankside, if you have not already done so. In effect we treat all levy-payers as members, but formally joining Better Bankside allows you to vote at the AGM, and be nominated to become a director of Better Bankside. All levy payers have the right to join Better Bankside and non-levy payers can apply to join at the discretion of the board.
The AGM provides an opportunity to ask the board any questions you may have about how we are investing our income on your behalf, or in relation to our activities more generally. Better Bankside's audited accounts will be available for review on our website seven days before the meeting.
The official proceedings will be wrapped up within half an hour. Stay for drinks and nibbles and meet our theme groups - the people involved in shaping the Better Bankside programme. New members are always welcome to join any of our eight theme groups, which are the driving force behind our major areas of work; place marketing, the public realm, business and employee engagement, safety, cleaning, travel and CSR.
We'd love to talk to you about the exciting new projects we are bringing to Bankside.
It would be helpful if you could RSVP in advance by emailing info [at] betterbankside.co.uk (subject: Better%20Bankside%20AGM%20rsvp)
